I know Bieniemy is going to get a pretty divided reaction, but I can think of no better way to stick it to the Chiefs than to hire the guy they let go of and are now paying the price for doing so. The Chiefs have gone from:
- 29.2 points per game with Bieniemy in 2022 to 22.8 with Matt Nagy this season
- 413.6 total yards per game with Bieniemy in 2022 to 358.8 with Matt Nagy this season
- 297.8 passing yards per game with Bieniemy in 2022 to 255.6 with Matt Nagy this season
- 115.9 rushing yards per game with Bieniemy in 2022 to 103.1 with Matt Nagy this season
We wanted to see what the Chiefs really looked like without Eric Bieniemy and how much or little he really did behind Andy Reid. We've gotten our answer.
Sam Howell, by the way, is seventh in the league in passing yards (3,568); he was leading the pack not too long ago. And on top of that, he's about to eclipse the 3,614 passing yards that both Carson Wentz and Taylor Heinicke threw for last year for Washington.
Bieniemy might not be the cleanest candidate out there, but I want the Chargers to win. He is one of the very few guys out there right now who would know exactly how to game plan against a Chiefs defense, and I know he'd be very hungry to overtake them in the division.
